An explosion is reported to have occurred in a church in Nigeria. The explosion occurred at St Theresa Catholic church in Madalla, Niger state, close to Nigeria's capital, Abuja, as people gathered for Christmas services. It was not immediately known what had caused the explosion or how many people were injured but there are reports of some deaths and people with serious injuries.
The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) said that the agency is struggling to deal with the incident. A spokesperson said, "We are presently evacuating the dead and the injured, but unfortunately we don't have enough ambulances. Most of our ambulances have gone to operate on the major highways of the country,"
The Nigeria Police Force also confirmed the explosion but did not provide any other details.
There hasn't been any claim of responsibility, although most Nigerians will probably suspect the Islamist group Boko Haram which claims to have launched a campaign to introduce Sharia law across Nigeria and has been blamed for a series of recent bombings and shootings in Nigeria, including attacks on an election office, the UN office, and churches

Now Bomb kills worshippers in Church. Now accident kills crusaders in Lagos Ibadan Express way. Now robbers sack Church and robbed the worshippers. Why these evils are allowed to take place in the Kingdom of Christ? The reason is because the Customs and traditions of men sacked the Spirit and Power of Christ in the Church.
When you speak about Power of Christ and deeply revelation of Christ among Most Popular Churches in the world, their leaders will rised against you, by calling you name. What is your degree? They will say to you, I have PHD in Theology you have only a Diploma or BSC even less who teach you what you are saying?
These people forgot that you may had spent over 15 years in Spirit walking with Holy Host of Great Teacher. Their lack of understanding for things of Spirit is the reason many Christians go to native Doctors to seek help for their problems. The Gospel of John 1:16 says: His fullness we all received, and grace for grace. When we come to fullness of understanding of Christ we shall become Grace with Ocean Grace Water that quenches all fire of terro of angels and men in all universe, even that of Boko Haram in Nigeria. God is not a respecter of men.
No man has right to direct God for his election of Grace. President Johnathan Iam ready to save Nigeria from these mess of Boko Haram only when you are ready for truth.

Merry Christmas NGEX. Merry Christmas Americans. Merry Christmas to all Nigerians. 2011 Christmas has turned to be a blessing to Nigerians even with burden of evils killers. The action of all Killers, Corruptive Leadership, Kidnappers, Robbers, 419s, Drugs Barons, 419 preachers, Niger Delta Militants, Boko Haram, Islamic Jihadist, Christian Jihadist and all killers of Grace with Women rights. Your days are numbered.
President Johnathan you like it or not wake up and fight corruption in Nigeria or corruption will fight you.
All untouchables who covered themselves with law and Word of God. Jesus Christ asks the Jews saying: If you that brought the Word of God to the world were made Gods by Law. What about the personality of Word who became flesh? If them the Law was given became Gods with law and them faith was given became Gods with faith. What will I do being? The Spirit. The Word. The Way. The Truth. The Life. The Faith. The Law. The Death and Resurrection. The Compassion, Grace and Mercy.(John 10:34,35. Psalms 82:6)
A change that will unified all faith, science, religions, Atheists, Governments, white, black, tribes, heavens, seas, clouds, suns, moons, stars and earth has come. It comes with Christ Last Salvation of Faith and Death which is Islam.
